Welcome to UAH! We are very happy to partner with the Huntsville City Schools (HCS) in order to provide this magnate program on the campus of Mae Jemison High School. Congratulations on embarking on this academic journey.

College Academy is a rigorous program with a highly selective selection process in place for students wishing to attend. Selected students take a combination of high school and college courses aligned such that they meet high school graduation requirements and the requirements of the following college bodies: Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC); Alabama Articulation and General Studies Committee/Statewide Transfer and Articulation Reporting System (AGSC/STARS); Alabama Commission on Higher Education (ACHE).

Upon graduation from College Academy, students may enter UAH with up to 60 hours of earned college credit, thus entering as a junior in college. Students will be eligible for merit and need-based scholarships when they enter UAH full-time.
